My husband and I are traveling to Napa Valley for 3 days in mid-December and, while we enjoy wine and wine tastings very much, we're far from being oenophiles. We'd love to go to some tastings that are informative (we're interested in learning about the wine making process) and in lovely surroundings.
The Calistoga Wine Tasting Passport looks like a great deal, but besides Castello di Amarosa (which I had on our list already since it looks like a rather unique setting), I don't know how to choose between the other wineries. If it's nice weather we'd love to picnic, but I don't think we can count on that in Dec. I would really appreciate peoples' opinions/experiences/advice about the other participating wineries:
Lava Vine, LLC
Rios Wine Company
Summers Estate Wines
W.H. Smith Wines & Wine Sensory Experience (a good choice for learning about wines and wine tastings?)
Thanks very much!
